Air Terminal Doesn't See the Grid

Revit MEP focus - There is at least one air terminal family that doesn't play nice with ceiling grids. The family is called "Supply Diffuser - Square - Hosted.rfa". The culprit is that four reference planes do not have the correct IsReference parameter value. I've posted a Video to walk through fixing this.

Same goes for rectilinear light fixtures.

Steve,

I posted a solution to AEC Bytes for this same issue however, I did it for the regular "Supply Diffuser - Hosted." In that particular family, I created and locked a vertical and horizontal RP 1'-0" from the "Center Front/Back" and "Center Left/Right" RPs. I then made them the origin in EPs. This works great in a 2x grid for a terminal of any size. Here is the link: http://www.aecbytes.com/tipsandtricks/2009/issue43-revitMEP.html
